Clinical Fellowship

The Animal Law & Policy Program Clinical Fellowship is a full-time, a one-year Fellowship to perform research on recent developments in the field of animal law and policy (as well as relevant items in Environmental Law, Food Law, and Administrative Law) in order to further the mission of the Animal Law & Policy Program and Clinic.

The Fellowship will provide an opportunity for motivated candidates to hone their research and writing skills by identifying and creating summaries of the latest developments in federal and state case law, legislative initiatives and enactments, regulatory actions, and published scholarship. That research also will be shared for use by other clinics and programs as well as practitioners in the field via the Brooks Institute.

Responsibilities additionally will entail monitoring the newsletters and websites of key agencies and organizations, and may include assisting the Animal Law & Policy Clinic faculty and staff on other specific research questions as needed.

The Fellowship will be conducted in residence at Harvard Law School and preferably would commence by September 1, 2019.

Candidates with a JD, LLM, or SJD are welcome to apply. The Fellow will be paid a stipend commensurate with experience and receive HLS employee benefits.
